Notes

  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Advance SP.  Please confirm the kit is working before completing the installation. We are unable to accept returns on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts are available above in the included section.
  • Too much pressure can permanently damage the screen and result in rows of dead pixels. Do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the IPS LCD before attempting to install it.
  • Note that the LCD comes with a pre-attached lens; we do not recommend attempting to remove this lens, as it is adhered directly to the LCD

Warning

  • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.
  • Ribbon cable is fragile; be sure to install it carefully.
  • We strongly recommend you follow the tutorial linked in the Documentation section, and use one of our professionally trimmed SP shells, to minimize the risk of damage during the installation.

Not happy

The screen is pretty good, and it displays how its supposed to.
The biggest problems I had with it was firstly it didn’t fit in the shell nice and snug, I had to cut the shell for it to fit properly.
The screen was also not centered on the LCD properly, when the shell is screwed up and closed you can tell the screen is on a slight tilt in the case. This makes it extremely unappealing.

Hi Steve,

I'm sorry to hear you had problems with your screen.
May I ask if you had a pre-trimmed shell or if you trimmed it on your own? Pre-trimmed shell could have been trimmed for an earlier version of the kit.

As for centring, there should not be any tilt in the screen. If the shell was not properly trimmed, the pressure on the screen might cause a tilt effect.

If you have any more questions regarding this kit, you can email us at support@retromodding.com and we will be glad to help you out.

This is 100% the effort and cost. If you look for a precut case it would be incredibly easy to install.

Screen is clear, but crooked

The lens on the screen I received was crooked, causing the screen to look crooked after installation. The screen tilts up and to the right. The quality of the image is great though.

Edit: Customer Support was very helpful in helping me get a replacement, hopefully it will work out.
